Everything overall was very good... :-) Nice place to stay. Clean. No extra amenities but all basic services fully functional and effective :-)
I think this is an excellent place to spend the couple of days in jakarta.. i dont think u need more than that.. perfect family run hostel atmosphere... fantastic atmosphere to mingle with backpackers.. games .. tv.. open kitchen.. laundry service.. perfect. The location was effective for travellers but on a slightly innappropriate street, which made it feel mildly vulnerable in context of security.
I spoke to the management and they said it was not their intention to be an expensive city hostel but to actually be youth hostel for young adults and all to network between each other catering to young students especially backpacking from the GCC region. I travel primarily to meet people amd that served my purpose i met people from pakistan jordan sudan nigeria i never easily meet these people backpacking. I think it is a great idea and intention my best wishes to the management.
This is a perfect hostel. The people running the show are quite amazing. The activities organised by the hostel groups in the area are perfect to encourage a little bit of mingling and touring. Thanks guys... Piotr Hugo and Colleen for making this such an terrific and enriching experience at the same time. :-)
It was a great hostel in context of infrastructure... but it had a strange policy regarding the common room which really did not allow the travellers to mingle...
Another brilliant stay... Fourth booking and stay at chambers of the boheme... in 30 days... need i say more... :-)
Everything is perfect... but what is exceptional and not easily available in most of the other hostels is the management.... which seems so committed in making sure u have a good time it is disarming ... in all my experiences at all the hostels till date i can never say that i have ever met a friendlier ..and warmer host.... :-). If Ilhas is there this should be your only choice.. :-) Mashaallah... :-)
Really amazing atmosphere vibe.. everything... the people passing by this hostel are the most varied that i have met... When i was in turkey for 30 days i come back to istanbul and stayed here thrice... :-)
Third time staying in this hostel... i needent say more .... but everything is perfect.... people travellers facilities... all delightful...and of course the location is numero uno.... i actually could not really hang anywhere else but istiklal street for 6 days.. :-) This place has my 100 percent vote :-) especially a travelling experience.. :-)
What lovely place to stay... it was brilliant ... the facilities were well above standard . But it was the management and the staff that was amazing to me.... From guiding you for tourist spots . Helping you book stuff. to showing u great places to eat.. All great ... in fact i extended my stay there... just cos i was so comfortable. The atmosphere was social and the quality of travellers passing by was also exceptional. Some of them became froends for travels ahead.. that is exactly what u want
Great people... Great Location. .. Irrestible party atmosphere.... Above all... It is an unavoidable travel party backpacker experience. DONT EXPECT TO SLEEP!!!!!! :-)
